The latest “urban hike” from the Pilgrimage of Faith team of the local Boy Scouts is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 4, in Dayton, Ohio. What I especially like about this ongoing effort is its deliberate embrace of the history and tradition of the pilgrimage — they even liken scout troops to crusading “ancient armies of old, knights in armor.” Information is available on the website:
